The Elder Dragon
This will be a quick update. We just received our Elder Dragon back from the painter and we wanted to take this moment to address a subject that has been asked enough times to get incorporated into our FAQ section: size and scale of miniatures.
In case you are wondering, this Elder Dragon prototype has approximately 270mm in height and a 300mm wingspan. We plan on reducing it (specially the wingspan) a little bit, in order for it to tightly fit a box with the same width of our Core Box / Expansion Box, since so many of you have backed our Full Pledge.
We had originally announced that the Elder Dragon would be on a 3-inch base. This would make him simply an alternate figure you could put on the board on a Boss Fight, instead of the figure you already find in the Core Box.
You correctly pointed out that this did not add anything to the gameplay, so we decided to change that. We will make a special Boss Fight designed to be played specifically against this Dragon, which will have a gargantuan 5-inch base diameter.
Since we are talking about sizes and scales, here they are for other miniatures in the game:
Heroes/villains: 28mm scale, total height range from 35 to 45mm (1-inch base diameter). Yes, they are compatible with those RPG games you enjoy that use 28mm scales.
Hydra: 90x120x85mm miniature (3-inch base diameter)
Core Box Dragon: 110x110x85mm (3-inch base diameter)
Walls: 55mm height; lenght variable (2-5 inches)
All miniatures will come preassembled and will be made of PVC plastic mixed with ABS, a resistant material that will not allow long sections (such as swords/spears) to bend.
